Erroneous retraction indicators for Discovery/EDS Health

Due to ongoing preparations for the new version of the Discovery/EDS Health search, there is now a link to “View Retraction” for the majority of search results and on the full display of citations when using the Discovery service or the search box from the Library’s home page:

Please note: the referenced article has probably not been retracted. If you click the “View Retraction” link and the screen is blank, there is most likely no retraction applicable to that article.

The LibKey products can help in identifying retracted articles. Please see this post for the indicators when an article is retracted.

CALS building access to Library resources

Picture of building exterior

If you are moving to the CALS building, please note that there will be a change to how you access Library resources. Due to the network that is used in CALS, it will appear as if you are off campus.

For those moving from the MEB in particular, if you’re used to going to sites directly without using Library links to do so, you will run into trouble getting resources as your new connection will not be seen as being truly on campus.

To ensure you’re recognized by resource providers as publishers as having access, it is best to use the links we have to databases, books, and journals. Using our links makes sure you’re authenticated and will not run into paywalls along the way. You can find these links in a variety of places: the Library’s web site, the Library catalog, the E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List, and our databases list. If you’ve not authenticated, you will be asked to log in using either your LSUHSC-NO email, a Library-issued barcode, or your network username. More information about logging in can be found on our Off Campus LibGuide.

A handy tool to help you navigate the minefield of authentication and access is the LibKey Nomad browser extension. It displays quick links to articles along with prompting for authentication when needed. It can be used in Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Brave, and Vivaldi browsers.

Another quick way to get to articles is the LibKey.io quick DOI and PMID lookup tool. All you need to do is plug in a PMID or DOI and let LibKey.io not only lead to the article, or options to get it, but it also ensures you’re signed in when needed. We have more information about this tool on our LibKey.io LibGuide.

We also have a LibGuide about accessing resources from CALS.

If you have any questions about this or any other Library resources, please contact us.

August Faculty Publications

A new selection of articles have been added to the Faculty Publications display in the Ische Library. These eight articles, as well as all of the articles in our Faculty Publications database, are authored by at least one member of our research community here at LSUHSC-New Orleans. Each month the Library is proud to present copies of eight of these publications in a rotating display of 16. With the currently changes, we’ve decided to post the publications digitally. Check out the display below:

Publications cited in the Faculty Publications database are harvested weekly from a variety of sources, such as PubMedSCOPUS, and CINAHL, to name a few. In addition to articles they include books, book chapters, papers, editorials, letters to the editor, and meeting abstracts, all authored by at least one member of the LSUHSC-NO community. The database is maintained by Metadata & Digital Projects Librarian Andrew Olinik.

A PDF of a bibliography of this month’s addition will be available here. If you have an article you would like us to highlight or if you have any questions regarding the display or the database, you can contact Andrew Olinik.

FIXED: ClinicalKey access problems

UPDATE August 5, 2022: The problem has been resolved, so you can now use the Library’s link to ClinicalKey (https://ezproxy.lsuhsc.edu/login?url=https://www.clinicalkey.com) and should not have any troubles. If you do need help, contact us.

ORIGINAL POST August 5, 2022: If you are trying to access ClinicalKey using any link that has https://ezproxy.lsuhsc.edu/login?url= as the prefix, it is currently not working. This will affect all off campus access, as well as using ClinicalKey through the VPN, Citrix, or on campus when logged into the LSUHSC-Secure wireless network.

Until this problem is resolved, you can access ClinicalKey by:

Go to https://www.clinicalkey.com

Choose Login on the top right of the screen:
